Scottish Supergroup Session A9 return to The Met

Scottish supergroup Session A9 return to The Met showcasing a feast of traditional music on Friday 20 September at 8pm.


Voted Best Live Act 2012 at the Scots Trad Music Awards, Session A9 feature fiddlers Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie), Gordon Gunn, Kevin Henderson (Boys of the Lough, Fiddlers’ Bid) and Adam Sutherland (Treacherous Orchestra), percussionist David ‘Chimp’ Robertson (Capercaillie), Marc Clement (ex Blazin’ Fiddles) on guitar and vocals and Brian McAlpine on piano.


Now in their 11th year Session A9 are legendary for their original compositions, sizzling arrangements and the skill, fire and enthusiasm which they bring to the stage and recordings alike.


“’Supergroup’ is an over-used term these days, bearing in mind the vast number of virtuoso musicians that inhabit the almost incestuous acoustic music scene, but in the case of Session A9, the moniker fits like a glove” – Northern Sky


Since releasing their debut album ‘What Road’ in 2003, the band have toured England and Scotland playing at music festivals including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Shetland Folk Festival and Ramsbottom Festival.


Tickets for the performance are £12. For more information or to book tickets phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
